Internships

The Internship Program is open to current students in an accredited high school, college (including 4-year colleges/universities, community colleges, and junior colleges); professional, technical, vocational, and trade school; advanced degree programs; or other educational institution pursuing a qualifying degree or certificate. This program allows for students to get hands-on work experience in the Federal Government, while still in school. Students, who are on non-temporary appointments and who successfully complete the program, may be non-competitively converted to a term or permanent competitive service position. Students serving on a temporary appointment are not eligible for non-competitive conversion. To be eligible students must: a. Be a U.S. citizen or U.S. national; b. Be at least 16 years of age; c. Meet applicable security clearance requirements; d. Must be in an accepted or enrolled student status (school must be accredited); and e. Maintain at least a 2.5 (Undergrad) or 3.0 (Grad) overall average on a 4.0 scale or the equivalent, and a record that is in all ways predictive of graduation. Students with grades below the required GPA for any two semesters are no longer eligible for the program.

The Recent Graduates Program specifically targets individuals who have recently graduated (within the last 2 years, if not a preference eligible veteran, or up to 6 years for a preference eligible veteran who could not apply due to military obligation) or obtained certificates from a qualifying educational institution or program and who are just beginning their careers, before their career paths are fully established. Successful applicants will be placed in a 1-year career development program, and may be non-competitively converted to a term or permanent competitive service position, upon successful completion of the program.

The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program is administered by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and has been the Federal Government's premier leadership development program for advanced degree (e.g., masters or professional degree) candidates. Executive Order 13562 expands the eligibility window for applicants, making it more "student friendly" by aligning it with academic calendars and allowing those who have received a qualifying advanced degree within the preceding two years to participate. Each year, candidates apply to the program in efforts to be selected as finalists. Finalists are then eligible for appointment as Presidential Management Fellows. The very first step in successfully becoming a PMF is paying attention to the details of the annual application and assessment process. Once the application period opens, it will appear on USAJOBS by searching for "Presidential Management Fellows."
